Join Beavers

Exploring the great outdoors

You’ll spend lots of time outside with your colony. Together;

  • you might build a den
  • go on a trip to the seaside
  • host a Beaver sleepover beneath the stars.

Even though you might not be ready to climb Mount Everest just yet, you’re guaranteed to have plenty of adventures on your own doorstop, because being a Beaver is all about making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.

About the Beavers

Beavers are young adventurers aged 6 – 8 who gather in groups or Beaver Colonies as we call it and will embark on fun experiences gaining life skills and friendships along the journey.

Trying new activities and learning new things

Going to Beavers is very different from going to school. Instead of learning from books, you’ll figure the world out by exploring, playing and doing.

The most important skills you’ll learn at Beavers are the ones that will make you feel super strong standing on your own two feet. We call these character skills. They include things like;

  • integrity – being honest and doing what you think is right
  • initiative – knowing how to take the lead on something without being asked.

It’s all about having the courage to try new things and learn from them.

Helping others

Beavers work as a team to help other people, in their local communities and beyond. Whether they’re changing the whole world or helping a friend take the leap to try something new on a rainy Tuesday night, they always lend a hand.

Beaver Uniform

What Do Beavers Wear?

Beaver uniform consists of a blue sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.

Why Is It Important?

Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means you can run around and get messy without ruining your other clothes. It makes you feel part of a team. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out. And it gives you a place to show off all the brilliant badges you earn.

Where To Buy The Uniform

Uniform can either be bought from the scout online shop – Scout Store – or from a local supplier. If you’re stuck, ask adult volunteers to tell you more about what to buy and where to buy it. If cost is an issue, they will be more than happy to help.
